Just passed by the NW corner of Jones and Gerrard (where the bubble tea place used to be) and noticed the sign for Starbucks, opening soon. I don't know about you folks but that took me by surprise.
I know some may be down on Starbucks but I see this as a good thing for the 'nabe. Although I do feel sorry for the new place that opened just up the road, The Grinder. Hopefully there is room enough for all of them. They will probably make a killing just from the students alone.
